| Description

Early in the morning of the 26th April 1940, four members of KG 4 took off in their Heinkel He111 P-2 5J+CN from Fernebu, Oslo in Norway. One of three Heinkels tasked with attacking the town of Andalsnes, the bomber was damaged by the guns of HMS Manchester. Unable to keep formation with the other Heinkels the crew were then taken by surprise by two Blackburn Skuas of No. 801 Squadron FAA from HMS Ark Royal.

The pilot of Skua A7-A unleashed a hail of machine gun fire on the bomber - killing flight engineer Willi Stock. With one engine failing and the other on fire, pilot Richard Gumbrecht had no choice but to force-land somewhere among the snow covered mountains below. With Stock dead, the remaining three crew members escaped the wreckage and made their way down the mountain. The largely intact Heinkel sat on the mountain for over 30 years, before being recovered and restored by the Norwegian Armed Forces Aircraft Collection.

New for 2015, using our new 3D scanning technology, comes the amazing 1:72 Heinkel HEIII P2! Responsible for more damage from strategic bombing than any other aircraft during the Battle of Britain, this super high detailed aircraft has been designed with information never before used in Airfix model design and has produced fantastic results! “A wolf in sheep’s clothing”, this formidably fast medium bomber was at first masqueraded by the Luftwaffe as a commercial aircraft, when the intention was in fact for it to be converted into the enemy’s primary bomber during early stages of World War Two.

The best in this scale

I have built 2 of these Heinkels. They are quite complex but patience pays off as the finished products are superb. Good value too, the best He 111 model I have seen in this scale.

Quite good Heinkel

Most of the kit went together really well. However like another reviewer said the front glazing is quite tricky to put together without locating lugs or their equivalent. My bugbear is the fuselage windows. I know I got the right part number to the right position to the window holes but I found they did not fit at all well and took some fiddling to get them in position. I would suggest fitting them when fuselage halves are still on the sprue. Then you can easily fiddle them to fit snugly in position. Basically I found them all just too big for the locating holes.
